Time is money
Have you been underpaid because
you worked off the clock?
A Past or Present Employer Has Made You Work Before or After Your Regular Shift and You Weren't Paid For That Time.
f you arrived at work before your regular work shift began or stayed at work after your regular work shift ended and performed work for your employer (such as operating, servicing, or maintaining workplace equipment, preparing for or cleaning up after work activities, or dealing with job-related telephone calls, emails, or letters), you are entitled to be paid for that work. You are also entitled to be paid for job-related work that you performed at home. If you were underpaid, you may be entitled to back pay, liquidated damages and attorney fees.
The wage rules apply to both your past and current employers. And the rules apply even if your employment was terminated, if your employment was terminated, if you resigned, if you were paid “off the books,” or if you were an undocumented worker.
PLEASE: Do not assume or jump to the conclusion that you are not owed any wages. This is a legal decision that must be determined by a labor and employment lawyer. This is why we offer a free, confidential consultation. In many cases, employees do not know that they are being paid less than they are owed. You might be surprised to discover that a past or current employer owes you significant wages and damages for not paying you what you were owed. In addition, the law says your employer cannot retaliate against you for asserting your right to wages that you should have been paid.
If this situation sounds like an experience you have had with a past or present employer then we can help you. Either call us toll free at: 1•844•wage4me (1•844•924•3463) or contact us here for a free consultation..
